Ceo at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, David Green says the precinct has made a decision to eradicate the use of single-use plastic bottles and single-use plastic bags.
They are intending to do this over a three year period starting from the beginning of 2018.
We have 23 000 people who live and work here. The Waterfront is privately owned and managed which gives us a bit of control.— David Green, CEO of V&A Waterfront
Most retailers have the policy to reduce the use of plastic - they have alternatives...— David Green, CEO of V&A Waterfront
What we are saying is that we are going to create an opportunity for the V&A to actually move to the elimination phase. It is done in a lot of countries.— David Green, CEO of V&A Waterfront
Green says that the long-term plan is to eventually have a centralised plant at the precinct which will clean, fill and distribute glass bottles to all the eateries.
